$400k+ raised! Chip in to help us reach our goal
We've raised $407,283 to help the residents of Puʻuhonua O Waiʻanae buy and develop land for a permanent village. That's more than 25% towards our goal!
Puʻuhonua O Waiʻanae's model is also being noticed by major policymakers in Hawaii. The Lieutenant Governor announced a proposal to build Kauhale-style Hawaiian villages for the state's houseless, directly inspired by Puʻuhonua O Waiʻanae. The local news even used our rendering, created by Puʻuhonua o Waiʻanae leaders and Hui Aloha volunteers, of the future village in their coverage.
With a new and permanent physical location, Puʻuhonua O Waiʻanae will be able to continue pioneering their community-first model of addressing houselessness. They won't have to be afraid of being displaced and the village will be a stable and inspiring place of learning for all of us, housed and houseless.
